Valkyrien - sail plan
Just in - sketch done by Mark Meyers, who was the possible artist of another sketch of Valkyrien with a square rig!.
It shows the square sail rig that was planned for Valkyrien when she was restored in Hawaii.
Valkyrien´s "spreaders" are actually "crosstrees" and were built for square sails. The sketch shows the planned rig - the triangular Foresail, Fore Topsail and Fore Topgallant.
Valkyrien has waited a long time for the square sails but when she goes on the water in the Bay of Panama as a Sail Training Tall Ship, she will boast a square rig.

Were you able to save the Valkyrien? I spent 10 summers of my life as a child aboard her. She was the love of my life. I have so many amazing memories on her while she was in California. My dad sailed her from Hawaii to LA and stayed aboard her for 10 years while it went through various owners. I love that boat and really I have the fondest memories ever on her, so many stories of growing up on the Valkyrien.
